Banning was much harsher 5 or so years ago. If you said something and the elders didn't like it, you got banned. Your posts would also get deleted and you weren't informed why.
Many popular members who had thousands of posts were perma-banned and lot of people as a consequence stopped coming here. This is the reason why the forum is so inactive.

These days, it only gets active during matches. At other times, it seems it's just Zeeshan opening threads one after another ;D

And then, add the over-policing practices of our deshi culture to the mix. Our culture instills this in our belief...we're taught to police everything. Ke ki bollo, oitar onno meaning ghuray pechay we make a mountain out of a molehill.
Once upon a time, possibly a decade back, our Forget Cricket secton was the forum I came whenever a world event happened, the discussions were passionate yet informative and some members would cross a line that would have been ban-worthy a few years later ....

Anyways, balance is hard to maintain, and I respect the moderators wish to avoid a Cricinfo type forum ...

But that is one reason I do not come to this forum that much.

For a period of a few years in the noughties, I never had to log in, because I visited BC so frequently that I was logged in , permanently.
So when few months back, I had to type banglacricket (as it was no longer coming via auto type), and had to log in (using the same password I set 13 years back as a sophomore in UT), I felt a weird sense of pain.

It was like having to register yourself at the reception security with an ID when visiting your best ever friend's apartment after a few years gap ....

After my ban, I toned down a lot. Just avoided being controversial. I can still enjoy the forum, but at the time it was very frustrating.

No I wouldnt start arguments with members, I think I just said controversial things and complained against mod actions. I cant really remember exactly.
